I waited for a week or so before writing this review. Just so I had a chance to check out this machine. It's really nice. The intel i3 is quick and stable. The other features are nice. I was going to upgrade the ram to 8gb. But so far I don't think I have to. The machine is running just fine.
A lot of folks list their disgust with win 8. I took a couple of hours to cruise through win 8. It's just a typical windows OS. It has all the same features as XP, Vista, and 7. They might be in a different place or called a different name. But they are still there. Win 8.1 wasn't pre installed and so far I can't find a need to download 3.2gb upgrade to the os. I talked to a Geek at Best Buy, he said the download would take between 1 and 4 hours. Just my luck my ISP would have down time and the download would screw up my laptop.
There is not a lot of bloat ware on the computer. I removed Norton and installed Bitdefender without a problem. The computer set up did take some time. There are about 700mb's of win. updates, and Samsung has a bunch of their own. I did not uninstall any of the bloat ware until all the updates were done. But the uninstall was routine.
So of the build features on the laptop seem a little cheap but maybe that's just me.
I would recommend the computer to you, buying from TigerDirect is always a good idea. They have excellent customer service. I got the laptop in just three days after ordering.

11.9.13 UPDATE; I've had a chance to use this laptop for a while now. I really like it and Win8. I won't be updating to win8.1 anytime soon, or increasing the ram to 8gb. If you need a new laptop you can't go wrong with this laptop or with the price.

I really love this laptop! It's super-fast, plays videos and DVDs perfectly, and is so easy to use! The added bonus is the anti-glare screen. I have sensitive eyes and this screen is so comfortable I can go online for hours with no discomfort. Highly recommended!

Got this computer for my daughter going away to college. It didn't work properly since we got it. My IT department had it for a week and couldn't fix the problems with it. Finally returned it. Amazon gave me a full refund.

Great machine for the money. Super light, fast, intuitive to use. Getting used to the keyboard - a little touchy sometimes. Windows 8 was new to me, but I am getting the hang of it. Bought it for the portability and to get some light work done, but I also let the kids use it for homework and games. Am considering getting another just like it.

I am a Samsung owner of most electronics, from the S5, S3, tablets, and more. So, I was disappointedly surprised that my laptop was not close in comparison to my other toys. My primary concern about this item was the inconsistency of it working. Whenever I would turn it on, it would simply have a black screen. Troubleshooting directions would prompt me to unplug everything, take out the battery, and wait. This is not fun on a weekly basis. It's pretty annoying actually. And ironically, whenever I would try to connect with customer service to seek help, I would ALWAYS be disconnected. How's that for customer service :( So I do not recommend this product to anyone. I would wait for them to work out the kinks and opt for another version.

Great graphics but overall the construction is on the chintzy side. I could live with that but not the OS. Windows 8 is something Microsoft should be ashamed of. It seems to assume you are 15 years old and a complete idiot. Tries to do everything for you the way it thinks it should be done. Terrible OS.

This was the worst computer that I've ever owned and I'm VERY disappointed that Amazon would promote this product in any way. Last month a mandatory Samsung update ran on the computer (you don't get to choose to stop it) and there was a glitch that caused my entire computer to shut down. I contacted Samsung and they said they were aware and there was a recall but that window was closed so I would have to pay them several hundred dollars to get something fixed that they 100% acknowledged was their fault. Most disappointed that Amazon had this promoted as a good product when I purchased, totally not worth the paper weight the computer now is!!!!

This has been a great laptop so far. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Windows 8 because it is really focused on 'apps' and more like a tablet than a laptop but overall my experience has been great. The battery lasts for a couple hours, which is nice, and it isn't too heavy. The screen is large enough to watch movies or play games. Overall, I've been happy with the purchase and would definitely purchase another Samsung computer in the future.
